have harry reid running the place. he can do what he wants, whenever he wants. his lieutenants, they run the place as well and they're extremely partisan. but bottom line is people need to understand they can pretty much do anything they want because they're in the majority party. the only tools republicans have are to slow things down, law for full -- allow for full and fair debate and an open vote. they file bills, move for closure. and then try to ram it through. that's now how we should legislate. especially now. >> neil: nothing seems to change. >> you're right. >> neil: he's going to keep ramming through executive orders and spending. republicans argue they're not going to allow it. >> listen, you're right. he says he wants to reach across the aisle. you have senators like susan colins and others who are hopeful we'll get things done and work in a bipartisan manner then if it does it go the administration's way, he says we'll do it through check executive order. we need to work together as americans and find consensus and work on things we agree on. american people are de

, the senate majority leader, harry reid attacked it on tuesday. >> everyone has to look at the source where it comes from. a source that has brought up a lot of non-issues. i've told you how i feel about the source of this stuff. and it's really, very very typical for the source. >> bill: now, all fair minded americans will presume that senator menendez is innocent until proven guilty of any allegations, but in general, exploiting children is the worst possible scenario for any politician, and the evidence shows that he did not disclose about the jet trips, but that's a trifle compared to the under age always. they held it back for some time. but now, the story has advanced far beyond the rumor stage, and as an american, i hope that he had nothing to do with exploiting children, i hope. fox's news hour with laura ingram, and how do you read this. >> well, if the allegations are true, he's going to have to step down. >> bill: he'll go to prison. >> yes, we're talking about politics for a moment. and harry reid, i understand that he wants to write off anything that the daily caller is saying,
a a president to lead. all they have to do is come up with and sit down with harry reid and senate democrats and work out a plan that they can pass. bill: what about that? democratic congressman adam schiff out of california is on the appropriations committee. welcome to "america's newsroom.". what do you think about the speaker? he is putting all this on the president and democrats in the senate. time for them to step up. >> well a couple things. this is the same speaker that said he got 98% of what he wanted in the whole deal that set up the sequester. but we're getting a very mixed message. we're getting a message, the problem we want the other house to go first. or the problem we want the president to propose something. the president has proposed something. i don't think the america people really care about who's idea this originally was or who got 98% of the what. they want the economy to --. bill: sequester in my own state. that will --. bill: let me get that in a a moment. i don't think anybody is arguing that. you call this a man-made crisis. why wait until friday to sit down and tal
to the democratic leader and harry reid and said this is the solution. >> sean: there you have it the plan that the president is calling not smart, not fair, was actually his solution to quote, saving the economy. again, that's not what we heard today at the white house, what we heard was our commander campaigner in chief reverting back into election mode and bla and using pathetic scare tactics to smear the opposition. sound familiar? you've heard the fear mongering, what i'm about to play is only described as obama's mayen apocalypse, have you questioning whether or not the sun will rise next friday if in fact the sequester takes hold. here is more of the fear mongering and we hanitized this comment a little bit. >> now, congress allows this meat cleaver approach to take place, it will jeopardize our military readiness. >> what kind of training, son. >> training sir. >> it will eviscerate job training investments and training. >> i'm registered for this class. >> what class. >> this is u.s. history right there. >> emergency responders, their ability to help responders to prevent disaster
bill. they passed it. harry reid never even tack it up and the president didn't acknowledge it. but there are good ways to fix this problem without gutting our military. but we can't good back to where we were, where we're just adding all this spending back, along with the president's tax increases. >> you're saying basically the republicans should say, no, we're not going to do this, no more taxes? >> absolutely not. stewart. i'm not going to speak for the republicans anymore. but just speaking as a conservative, we have to get the president and the congress focused on, how can we cut spending and put ourself on a path to a balanced budget. if we don't start talking about a balanced budget and getting serious about it, you know what's going to happen and this movie will not end well. >> the congressional budget of office today protected the state of the economy. they said two things. number one, the deficit this year is going to come in lower trim dollars, the first time in the obama years. and they also said we're only goal going to great growth of 1.4%. they're saying if you
on gun control and it happens to be a democrat by the name of harry reid. >> right, a democrat by the name of harry reid, who has opposed some of the very kind of things that president obama is calling for a vote on this time. so, yeah, i think the president should nudge people in his own party to do the things that he wants them to do. we haven't seen him do it on gun control, certainly didn't see him do it on immigration and never did it on senate budge proposal. >> megyn: she calls it an empty gesture untied to political reality. if you watched that moment, he seemed to be implying that there were lawmakers there and one would assume it was lawmakers on the opposite aisle from the president who are going to stop gabby giffords and other victims of gun violence from getting a vote on this legislation. that's not the reality right now in the u.s. congress. >> you're right and look, anytime the president speaks in a venue like this, he's got several audiences and clearly what he's saying is not for the members of congress in front of him. as you point out. harry reid could have
the blame on harry reid. house had a budget, maybe good or but the senator never let it be brought to the floor so give and take negotiations. however, where i casted the blame back at president obama he submitted the budget is why didn't he pick up the phone and tell his party leader, harry reid, get a budget so we can at least have a conversation. >> listen, these are such important issues. i hate these back room deals. we voted on the fiscal cliff at 1:40 in the morning on new year's day. >> greta: who read it? >> i prevented 99% of americans from getting an income tax increase and money flowing out of the private sector to the inefficient government sector. i knew the basic thrust of doing business. we should have regular order which would be the house passes a budget, senate passes a budget and you reconcile that and that is the framework for the committee work. >> like the president was supposed to submit a budget. there is no regard for deadline. if the rest of us in america ignored deadlines. if i showed up at 10:15, how long would i keep my job. >> america is bankrupt. onl
about politics for a moment. and harry reid, i understand that he wants to write off anything that the daily caller is saying, and they backed off everything said for the day, but basically, they're punching on anything said before senator menendez. when you're a public official and elected, six, seven weeks ago by the people of your state to represent them, you have to hold yourself out as someone worthy of the trust of the public. and the late payments for the jet trips not withstanding, he violated senate ethics rules by not reporting those as significant gifts, and that in and of itself is serious. >> bill: he took the trips in august of 2010, and reimbursed the government in january of 2013, after the daily caller exposed the story. >> what it reminds me of a little bit is what happened with the john edwards story. of course one publication, the national enquirer was covering it, and pretty much every stayed away from it, and poo pooed it, and a significant time later, the national inquirer was right and they had done good reporting. i don't know the background of the rep

ought to stop calling it universal check, it's the check on law abiding people. >> reporter: harry reid says he supports the second amendment but he is not going on to let the nra getting in his way. >> just because they resist it doesn't mean we can't do things. we have a lot of special interest groups complain about things, we'll listen to them and make the right decision. >> he says the senate might soon debate on an assault weapons ban something that gabrielle giffords's husband argued for today. >> i spent 25 years in the military. i know the value of having an assault weapon and i think they are way too readily available. in time we will be able to address those issues. >> nra said enforcing existing laws would reduce gun violence and so would rounding up gangs in places like chicago. >> gregg: peter, thanks. >> heather: new information now on a charter bus crash in boston that left 35 people injured and one critically. the vehicle carrying high schoolers and chaperones it slammed into an overpass. the driver of the bus ignored road clearance warning signs. passengers say the impa

feinstein's assault weapons ban legislation, but top senate democrat harry reid sounds cautious about feinstein's proposal. >> she's talked to me about her assault weapons ban, a new one, and she believes in it fervently and i admire her for that. i'll take at that look at it. and we will all kinds of issues to deal with and i think everyone would be well-advised to determine how to read it. >> other tough votes on fiscal issues such as taxes and spending. house speaker john boehner, a republican says the process isn't easy. >> frankly, there's a lot of scar tissue that carries over with a lot of these bills, it's tough for congress to figure out where the common ground is. >> so the challenge for harry reid balancing loyalty to president obama and looking out for members who are on the ballot in 2014. >> alisyn: that's a tough dance or a boxing match if i'm going to use the harry reid analogy, thanks, mike. also, developing this hour, new reaction from the white house, growing concern over the president's policies that allowed drone strikes on u.s. citizens comes in the wake after re
such a liability for the democrats that harry reid and other democrats throw him overboard, then chris cities -- chris cities gets to name replacement. the other part of this is as you point out that if the fbi can go up the food chain because the part that they are looking at is influence pedaling, allegations of corruption that perhaps senator menendez his official office to work with his donor to pass out some business favors, perhaps, to this dozier. these are the allegations, this is what is out there. if they cannot just get to menendez but perhaps to a broader net of even bigger fish like the clintons who have been known to work with this donor, then i think the democrats have a wider scandal on their hands. >> bill: i think there is scandal here. >> guilt by association. >> bill: at this point, correct, there is no hard evans to show anything. as dr. crowley pointed out. >> that's what i have to call her. >> bill: you don't get a warrant or don't have fbi resources on a fishing expedition. >> innocent until proven guilty. wouldn't talk to the fbi and men then des who won by 19 points.

are the prospective candidates. there was a reason why todd akin won the primary. he won because harry reid went in and spent $2 million attacking him as a conservative during the republican primary. he said himself he has never voted for a tax increase. always been prolife. even supported a balanced budget amendment too conservative for missouri. the object was help nominate the weakest republican candidate possible to have is a chance. >> you are going to set your isself up as a bureau vetting the candidates. i mean -- >> no, no, no. >> the whole theory of republicanism is to let the local state or district decide. >> i think rand paul had it right. everybody has a chance. we believe in markets. let people do go in and partis it pate. the more people who participate the better off we are. the more we examine the quality of the candidates from top to bottom the more likely we end up with fewer kristine o'donnells and more rand pauls. >> chris: what do you make of the republican party decision to block temporarily but to block the nomination of a defense secretary for the first time in our histo
the american public when he can go one mile down and talk to harry reid. you know, look, we're talking about 85 billion dollars. we borrow 85 billion dollars every 25 days. all we're doing is taking what we cut for a month in less than a month. >> greta: did you agree with tom coburn that the crisis is made up? >> by far. we have more revenue in 2013 projected. what the president asks for, to take more from the american taxpayers, if you can't take the cut how can we put this place back in order. and many go back in 2009. were planes not flying there, were people not getting their first responders then? no, why is the president creating the hysteria when really we should get this government under control? >> why is he doing that, if he's doing that. >> because he's never gotten off the campaign trail and that's what's wrong, why i call him the road show president. the saddest part about all of this, and the divided government you achieve big things. you can't achieve something if he's out campaigning. you've got to be able to govern and lead. and we're willing to work with him, but he's got to
't had a valentine's day budget in four years." from harry reid. and from vice president biden, "today's three letter word -- l-o-v-e." we now know the recession and the euro zone is getting worse, not better. that cannot be good news for the u.s., actually. senior foreign affairs correspondent greg palkot has the story from london. >> the latest figure shows euro zone falling deeper in recession. >> europe is spluttering, stuttering and having a terrible time. >> effectively a double dip recession. some of the hardest hit country were debt-plagued spain and italy. france was sluggish. growth in germany down .6%. slow growth in economic powerhouse germany is especially worrying. the weakness is hurting the german exports. adding to economic headache, strike of security workers for higher pay snarled airports in germany today. >> he said is up it. even if i suffer for it. further come pounding problems debt-ridden countries are saddled with high unemployment. the jobless rate in greece is record 27%. i come here all the time. there are no jobs. economists say there could be some pick nu
about gun control legislation on the hill this time around. folks like senate majority leader harry reid who has been a long time progun ownership advocate under a lot of pressure to get some of these measures whether it's the one by senator dianne feinstein or others who are not viewed as restrictive what do you is you stall and you hope. the senate is good at doing. is not doing stuff. the hope for senate majority leader reid and other nra backed or progun democrats in the u.s. senate is play for time, have this work itself out. we see the bipartisan offer from joe manchin democrat from pennsylvania and republican from illinois background checks that you hope that some compromise position emerges. you can take ahold of that and get away from the issue. because i am sure that harry reid, ahead of having so many red state democrats up for re-election in 2014, is he not interested in doing a gun ban of any kind. i can't think that he would be because it would be so bad for some of his members and chances for remaining majority member. we are looking at the president departing from air for
with harry reid. >> should the president turn his bus around? we report. you decide. >>steve: turn the bus around or turn the beat around? >>brian: one was al roker's book and one was the 1970's hit. >>steve: the president tells the press out with you's. >> look forward to our partnering. with that, what i want to do is clear out the press so we can take some questions. all right? >>brian: fantastic. goodbye, ed henry. there is one way to hear what he has to say. a little bit later you're going to ask some questions and i'll leave. the picture you didn't see from the first lady's oscar appearance. who decided she needed to cover up and get some sleeves and a higher neckline?

. nonetheless, harry reid, given the fact that we're facing that looming deadline on friday, he says the republicans can fix it all if they do the one thing they absolutely won't do, which makes this impossible, and that is jack up taxes. >> those cuts will go forward. they are all cuts. i think we need some revenue to take the pressure off everybody. the american people agree with me. until there's some agreement on revenue, i believe we should go ahead with the sequester. >>gretchen: it's interesting because the president talks about compromise. i know time goes by fast. but the republicans just did compromise and they did raise taxes. in fact, everyone's taxes went up because you're all paying social security again now. the tax-free holiday is gone. it's amazing to me that this messaging is still out there, that this is all about taxes. by the way, senator reid, americans don't agree with you totally. here's a rasmussen poll. the best way to slash the deficit, reduce taxes alone, only 6%. reduce by cutting spending: 45%. a combination, more spending cuts than tax hikes: 36%. >>st
, thank you. >> shannon: senate majority leader harry reid says he has the utmost confidence in fellow senator robert menendez. he has been mentioned in connection with an fbi investigation into one of his political donors. reid said that he is sure menendez did nothing wrong and proving that is what investigations are all about. >>> the next big legislative debate here in washington. guns. peter doocy has the latest. hello, peter. >> reporter: talk on capitol hill about perhaps trying to set up a universal background check system to reduce gun violence. wane la pear from the national rifle association said that wouldn't do anything. >> it is a fraud to call it universal. it willle never be universal. the criminals aren't going to comply with it. they could care less. you have already seen you are not going to computerize the mental health records. we ought to quit calling it right now a universal check. the title ought to be a check on law abiding people all over the country. >> reporter: senate majority leader harry reid who says he thinks it is possible to support the second amendme
of questions about whether democratic legislators up to and including harry reid would support what the president wants to do when t comes to gun control. >> that is a good question, jon. in the political calculus that is pretty simple. you have democrats that could be embarrassed if forced take a vote on guns. like assault weapons ban, et cetera. those are in conservative states or in the house in conservative districts may have been carried by mitt romney and they're holding on by a thread. we're talking about whether or not senate majority leader harry reid is willing to put those democrats at risk and also then put at risk control of the senate because republicans have fewer people who were running, who will be running in 14 and fewer people who are at risk. though again, the dynamic is very difficult for the democrats and here's a vote that would expose them to great political costs. jon: let's take, let's take another listen at one of the things the president said last night. >> and i know you want these job-creating projects in your district. i've seen all those ribbon cuttin
. >> that is classic harry reid. he said that when why do something he doesn't like. if we agreed to everything he wanted to do he might be happy. nevertheless, this is a serious situation when you talk about a secretary of defense. this is the most important choice a president can make. i think he's made a choice even democrats scratching their head and they were embarrassed also about the performance, unacceptable performance of chuck hagel before the armed services committee . i think it deserves at least a little time to continue to look at what his position and going and leadership he can or can't provide. i don't know what the democratics will circle the wagon and support the president. but many of them have real concerns over whether it a good choice. >> we'll see if they go public with those. senator dan coats, for your time. >> thank you. >> pakistani officials called a deadly bombing a failure of security and intelligence agencies. security official it is did not act because they are scared of what the terrorist may do to them. 81 people were kim 61 others were injured. a mass funeral is
. how d special report? how are you doing. >> reporter: good morning, bill. bill: harry reid is talking about this potentially on the floor of the senate. if there is news we'll bring it to our viewers. graham says the debate is not over, it has not been serious. what gives? >> reporter: a couple of things, one is confirmation hearings matter. this was not a good showing for chuck hagel in this confirmation hearing and despite the fact that you have other controversial cabinet nominees who have potentially bumpy confirmation hearings hagel's did not go well, and even folks on the democratic side will acknowledge that, and that has made it even more difficult. then you have the additional problem, from his supporters' point of view, that there are calls for speeches that did not come out for the committee that hagel gave and they never received, and now you have one speech, for example, that a group says that they can get to the committee by friday. its already out of committee, but -- so now it's on the house floor. this vote happens, they need 60 votes. democrats have a 55-45 vote marg
rational responsible way. and goes over to senate harry reid and kill the bill and you didn't hear that from congressman ellison, there's not truth from the other side and that's why both sides-- >> both sides say there isn't truth coming from the other side. and here is what i see when i see that exchange, i think this guy, do we have this guy to sit republicans and sit down and strike a deal on this? i'm sure there's some obstinate republican on the other side who is also going to give him a tough time. it's just a turn off. and these are elected representatives and people who trust to get something done for us? >> well, i think that the bottom line here is that what people really want to know is why-- what is up with the sequester, i think what people really want is for the sequester not to move forward and i think that's what the conversation needs to be about. if the sequester needs to move forward the estimates are that the 750,000-- you're going into talking points. >> no, i'm not. >> speaking to my point you can get the talking points online. >> this is not talking points.
is a prime example in places like new york, new jersey, california. gun control is popular. but harry reid also has democratic members from places like west virgina, arkansas, louisiana, and alaska where gun control can be dirty words. here is senator reid speaking recently about his conversation with california's dianne feinstein about an assault weapons ban. >> she's talked to me about her assault weapons ban, a new one. she believes in it fervently and i admire her for that. i will take a look at that. as i have indicated to you folks, we'll have votes on all kinds of issues dealing with guns and i think everyone will be well-sized to read the legislation before they determine how they're to vote for it. >> reporter: so a tricky act ahead for senator reid as he balances risking his members and their re-election bids in 2014 and 2016 and going ahead with the president's agenda. bottom line, he has some serious work ahead and it will be interesting to see what comes out from the president's pep talk with members today. jenna? jenna: i know you read all the legislation by the way before an
comes up at the end of the month? >> listen if harry reid wanted to bring it up he could cancel a vacation and come in next week if he wanted. the real easy answer is immediately provide the information. there is a history with the administration and the majority party not providing all of the information. they will provide a little bit here, a little bit there. hopefully you will forget about it. bottom line if they want to get this done, they should sit down with the concerned senators and actually provide the appropriate information. that is pretty simple. bill: this is what we heard. at least two of the speeches apparently were made, four, maybe five years ago that were not provided. was it intentional for him not to present these speeches because they thought it would be controversial? >> i'm not sure, certainly. but they are, people are aware of them and they need to be part of the entire package that is being presented. and the senators have an absolute right to get this information. bill: senator lindsey graham has been hot on this trail and his big issue is not having t
to harry reid. bill: that is cab fare, by the way. steve hayes, senior writer, "weekly standard." fox news contributor. good morning to you. >> good morning bill. >> president is on the road. no meetings to talk about this between senate leaders and house leaders. no meetings with the administration. friday there is no session on the schedule for congress. >> right. what's different about this one is that in the past, the fiscal cliff, these other things you at least staff to staff contact and negotiations and ongoing discussions, sort of largely out of public view. that even is not happening in this scenario. i think we're likely to see the sequester come march first and see how it plays out the next month. bill: if it comes, this deadline is little different from what we've seen in the past, steve. >> right. bill: this is gradual. make it works its way into the system a little bit at a time during the month of march. for sure during april. >> right. bill: it seems to have a different feel. there is not the urgency there. >> it does. this is where the white house is having, creating some
to break out that one either, are we, mike? >> reporter: no but harry reid is boxer so you never know. jon: that is interesting. mike emanuel on capitol hill. jenna. jenna: there is a little name-calling as we've been covering, what was it weak sauce from harry reid and john boehner using other colorful language so. when they get together --. jon: get off of its mule? jenna: well-put, jon. just for our younger viewers. we'll continue to follow what is going on with sequestration. as mike was just mentioning, time is really ticking by. you have billions of spending cuts set to go into effect tomorrow. there will be some of that happening right away but some of it delayed. the sequester deadline is hours away though today. what to expect now that we're in the final county down. >>> also new testimony from the woman who claims she brutally killed her boyfriend in self-defense. the latest from the jodi arias murder trial next. searing for a bank designed for investors like you? tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 schwab bank was built with all e value and convenience tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 investors want. tdd#
, chris, something that stood out to me is the backbone of harry reid. had he perhaps more of a backbone during these filibuster negotiations, and filibuster reform, perhaps he wouldn't be sitting here having this discussion anyway, and some of the fault, maybe a large portion of the fault lay with harry reid for us even having this discussion this morning? >> well, in fairness, look, both sides have threatened to do something about the filibuster and both sides are reluctant to do it, because quite frankly, they know the once that were in the majority now know at some point they'll be in the minority and vice versa and you know, there is some deference made to some rules of the senate and one of the things they all say if we'd stop the filibuster we'd become just like the house and i promise you on in congress on capitol hill that's not a compliment. >> is there any merit to what democrats are saying about the g.o.p. blocking this and putting the country at risk 'cause it's such an important security post? >> no, i mean, for one thing, the senate democrats said well, we're not going to
of the people who will be at the meeting tomorrow. john boehner speaker of the house. harry reid senate majority leader, mitch mcconnell and nancy pelosi, of course. what is the point of this meeting tomorrow? it is the deadline. what are they going to get done in this meeting. some people are saying it could be a photo opportunity to once again -- the president is very good at messaging -- to put out to the american people. i tried, i had a meeting with these top-level meeting and nothing came of it. >>brian: i have a hunch. john boehner is on the record saying this is going to be a listening meeting for me. i think the president will say there is your delay for two months. here's an idea of going forward for the next two months. is delay all these cuts from taking place. therefore, if you don't accept this piece of paper, you are truly the bad guys. >>steve: "the washington post" says today that what the president is going to ask republicans, he's going to ask them what one tax break would you give up? just give up one thing. of course the white house has made that clear that they want more re
